Call to Prayer: Border Crisis & Global Concerns

Bishops Call UMC to Prayer

The Executive Committee of The United Methodist Council of Bishops has called on United Methodists across the connection, “to pray, reflect, and engage in acts of compassion.”

Included in the Bishops’ statement is that the Bishops, “commend to all the July 18-20, 2014, ‘Interfaith Weekend of Compassion and Prayer for Unaccompanied Migrant Children‘ and the ‘Pastoral Letter‘ from the United Methodist Bishops in Texas, as well as other resources available through our Annual Conferences and General Boards and Agencies.”

Global Young People’s Convocation

Let us pray for our group of young people from the California-Pacific Conference who are currently in good spirits in the Philippines attending the United Methodist Global Young People’s Convention after having to relocate because of Typhoon Rammasun.

Methodist Church of Kenya

Let us pray for Bishop Zablon Nthamburi of The Methodist Church of Kenya, who presented Bishop Minerva G. Carcaño with a figurine of a pregnant giraffe at Journey to Wholeness: Annual Conference 2014, and the people of Kenya as they experience insecurity and persistent drought during this difficult time.
